The Institute of Flight Guidance (IFF) is part of the Technische Universität Braunschweig, Germany, and located at the research airport of Braunschweig. For the research in the lower atmosphere, TU Braunschweig operates several meteorological UAS (Unmanned Aerial Systems), the helicopter towed sonde HELiPOD and manned research aircraft.
We are looking for a project scientist (PhD student), starting as soon as possible, for the analysis of data obtained with HELiPOD in the central Arctic. The focus of the data is on turbulent fluxes of sensible and latent heat, and the interaction of the atmospheric boundary layer and the surface properties.
We offer innovative technology, unique scientific data sets and the opportunity to co-operate with excellent scientists in the framework of the MOSAiC expedition.
We expect that the candidate has a strong background in boundary-layer meteorology and will become acquainted with electronics and measurement techniques.
